IP6 explores the effects of spatial mobility on the reconfiguration of gender vulnerabilities, from a multidimensional, multilevel and multidirectional perspective (Spini et al., 2017). We propose to studyand compare different  forms of spatial mobility (expatriation, migration, residential change, educationalmobility) in order  to establish their links to vulnerability processes. In accordance with the overall LIVESperspective, we take  vulnerability as an inherently dynamic process (Spini et al., 2017), composed ofinteractions between  challenges or stressors that individuals may face across the life course, and the resources they are able to mobilize to deal with such challenges (ibid.). These resources may be of a material, relational or cognitive nature, implying the need to study vulnerability as something that is analytically distinct from social exclusion (Castel, 1995, 2009) or precarity (Paugam, 2000). The aim of this IP is to explore the role of spatial mobility in vulnerability processes in societies characterized by increasing levels of globalizsation and internationalization (Marginson 2009) and by significant shifts in normative gender expectations and aspirations (Esping-Anderson 2009; Le Feuvre 2018).
